WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – If there is one thing Donald Trump isn’t willing to give up even as president, it is his Twitter account. He continues to use Twitter to post cryptic messages and to attack those who criticize him — 140 characters at a time.
Today, Trump formally asked Twitter to increase the character limit to 280.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer told The Adobo Chronicles that 140 characters is just not sufficient for the president when sending messages on social media. “Everyone knows he likes to talk, so a 100% increase in the character limit for tweets would be very helpful,” Spicer said.
It wasn’t clear whether Trump’s request was exlusively for the Office of the President or if it would be apply to all Twitter users.
The Twitter headquarters in San Francisco has yet to respond to Trump’s request.
